Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday rejected the “absurd” decision by the International Criminal Court to investigate alleged war crimes committed during the summer war in Gaza, saying it is absurd that “Palestinian terrorists who routinely commit multiple war crimes” will be the ones pressing charges against Israel.

ICC prosecutors said the preliminary examination would scrutinize “in full independence and impartiality” crimes that may have occurred since June 13 last year, opening a path to possible charges against Israelis or Palestinians.

    welcome to the club of infinite horror…..i think it is most funny to even mention ‘SPONGE BOB’, UN secretary General Ban Ki-moon ; as if this truly means something…even if you mention Barak Obama , the failed president it would bring no position to question.

    there are two platforms….one that is willing to assist and one that is more willing to destroy……bless them all with 72 ugly virgins……and make sure their are not trannys.

    all in all…….the sword has changed positions……..ride the waive……and if you don’t believe there is a world war going on then don’t knock on my door.

    this is a war by land……all lands are already heavily laden with terrorists and families they can extort……if you look into history please be reminded of the fall of the roman empire where dirty maggots from other lands move closer to their main goal….or the trojan horse.

    watching our backs is more the case we worry about.

    so thank many for this.

    Then Israel should prepare the war crime allegation against every “palestinian” who have attacked Israel!

    Excellent news!!! Get ready for court Israeli criminals. 🙂

    Why the parenthesis around headline word absurd? Is there any doubt that the charges are absurd?

    • American

      Baby killers and land-thieving Israelis will get their day in court. 🙂

    • War crimes investigation

      @Robert Weintraub, It is confusing and amazing that you would suggest a war crimes investigation into the alleged killings of thousands of innocent Palestinian civilians in their own homes and schools is ‘absurd’.

      Isn’t the whole point of the International Criminal Court to investigate such allegations that have been widely documented?

      Either the allegations of such war crimes are true and should be prosecuted, or an ICC investigation should exonerate the Israeli regime from these allegations if such atrocities are untrue.

      If the allegations are untrue then one would think the Israeli regime would look forward to exoneration.

      Either way it seems that what would be ‘absurd’ is for the ICC not to conduct a full and proper investigation to at least determine whether the alleged atrocities took place.

      Who would want to live in a world where such widely documented atrocities against any perpetrator would not be at least investigated?
